Lightweight Aluminium Porsche 911 Door Hinges

Our all-new aluminium door hinges have gone on sale, solving the huge problem of how to mount doors, when the factory hinges are not easily removable.

EB’s hinge solution replicates the shape of factory hinges, but ours are machined from billet aluminium with a detailed aluminium pin and fitted bronze bush.

“The cheap approach would be to use a plain steel pin and no bush, but that is not EB,” says EB’s Mark Bates. “We machine the pin with splines, and indents top and bottom, so a centre punch stays put. The bronze bush adds longevity and makes them squeak-free. Each hinge assembly saves 250g, so a total of 1 kg lost from the chassis.”

EB Motorsport’s door hinges are an accurate reproduction of the OEM steel unit, so parts are interchangeable (theoretically).

However! We’ve had trouble trying split OEM hinges and getting the steel pin out, as they seize in and you end up damaging the pin and in most cases distorting one or both halves.

On original Porsche 911s, the hinge half fixed to the door is riveted in place, making it difficult to remove without destroying the door.

Conclusion: buy the complete unit? Especially valid for builders chasing ultimate lightweight.
